Councillors have thrown out the US tycoon Donald Trump's plan for a £1bn golf resort and complex in north-east Scotland.

Aberdeenshire council's infrastructure services committee rejected a planning application for the Trump International Golf Links Scotland in a close vote today.

The Formartine area committee had earlier approved outline planning permission for the development at Menie Estate near Balmedie, just north of Aberdeen.

But members of the more powerful infrastructure committee voted against the proposal.
